Is CH already stockpiling? And where? Maybe they could give us a few hints about what will be in short supply.
I can confirm that the infirmary had begun stockpiling Bradosol as early as 1989 :D

89/90 was a long time ago! Although did you stay down and go up to Peele A when you were a UF?
Sadly, I don't think that it was that straight forward - but it's a thought.
No, they abolished the block system at the end of my LE so I went to Maine A.

Re: Management knowledge of the Husband/Dobbie cases

As for Dobbie, I was extremely naive at the time and had no idea at all. In retrospect it seems obvious - especially with his close relationship with the Ball brothers etc. It also makes me wonder about one person in my year, who I was at primary school with, who was being 'counselled' by him, went...

Re: Management knowledge of the Husband/Dobbie cases

Thanks. I might just point them towards this website and ask them to get privately contact anyone they want to.

I'm assuming that any posts on here are considered to be in the public domain.

Re: Identification.

Going back to my nearly serious list of what the proposed ID card would have included, there is now a proposal that unless you formally opt out then on death your body will be unceremoniously hacked to bits, those bits being shoved in some unfortunate's body so they can cavort for many extra years....

Re: Management knowledge of the Husband/Dobbie cases

Update. I have now heard from IICSA as per below: "The Inquiry has recently published an update note on the residential schools investigation. Phase one of this investigation will focus on a selection of specific special and music schools, as well as producing a narrative on eight closed residential...

Re: Management knowledge of the Husband/Dobbie cases

Just a thought...but has there been any discussion as to whether CH ought to be included in the Residential Schools investigation as part of the Independent Inquiry Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) ? I emailed IICSA on 13.8.2018 with this very question. Over 3 months later I am yet to receive a response ...

Re: Wikipedia Entry?

Nothing to stop anyone fleshing out the lone sentence and adding in some more info. I see Ampleforth's wiki page has 4 paragraphs.

Rather disappointed that CH doesn't have an Uncyclopedia page. Eton's is quite good:

Re: Resignation of Baker and emergency appointment of Hansford

I think we’ll have to agree to disagree about the meaning of the phrase The Other Place, I’ve always understood it to be slightly derogatory, but perhaps that’s biased by being an Oxford graduate where it was derogatory about Cambridge. Anyone familiar with the film Withnail & I will know that the ...

Re: All this is incredibly sad

The houses are visited on a random basis by an SLT member on virtually every night of the week. It's reassuring to know that this happens now, but it certainly was not happening as recently as the early-mid 1990's. Poulton visited Maine B once while I was there, the only time I ever spoke to him, a...
